Rainbows of Delight

Today is the last day of my vacation and these days have been a wonderful milestone along my creative path.

I can see the light at the end of the dragon-filled tunnel and will ship them by this next Friday.

They are very cute.

I hand stitch the heads to the bodies, sew on the legs and arm. Each is given great care and attention.

I will shut up for good about the dragons after telling you that I have created a dragon listing in my Etsy shop. Now on to other things.

Yoko D’Holbachie is an amazing Japanese artist featured in Hi Fructose magazine last year.

My pictures aren’t nearly as bright as the work.

The page looks fuzzy and glares under the lights.

But , still, dig it if you will.

A quote from the mag:

“d’Holbachie says she has always had a maternal feeling toward her images, that she thought of her creations as her children.”

dholbachiepile“Her attitude seems to be changing.

‘Now I take each of then for my twin brother in a sense becausewe have been ever together since we were born. Some one has told me __ all of your pictures are your self-portaits. It might be true in the sense that he is my twin brother.’ ”

These images seem to be related to stuffed creatures.

In Japan, according to David Sedaris in his latest book When You are Engulfed in Flames, the department stores all have handmade stuffed toys. I heard him say this on the radio. I would like to know more about this.
